With a booming economy and stable democracy, things are going well in Namibia. Tourism plays a huge role in the country, with some 1.5 million travellers visiting each year to explore and enjoy the country's phenomenal landscapes, wildlife, natural history, and its immense sense of space. This breathtaking Namibia book by New York Times-acclaimed photographer Michael Poliza captures some of the country's most spectacular scenery, from the highest star dunes in the world around Sossusvlei to the NamibRand Nature Reserve, the Kalahari Desert, and the granite peaks of the Spitzkoppe. Taken from both the ground and the air, more than 100 photographs present the country's nature and wildlife, as well as its indigenous peoples and their ways of life as cattle breeders and smallholder farmers. Poliza's photographs also reveal the astonishing life of the desert, especially after rare rain fall. Oryx antelopes, jackals and meerkats, ostriches and springboks are there, where incredible plants also sprout up and in turn attract their predators; Namibia is also home to the "Big Five": lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo, and rhino, all sharing what little there is to go around in this arid, extraordinary, and delicate ecosystem.

Previously announced. Format & Price change When I grow up, will I be the King of the Jungle…?Curious, playful, and clumsy: Michael Poliza’s irre-sistible photographs of baby animals are so adorable that it is hard to imagine these same creatures grow-ing up into fierce hunters or nimble prey, battling it out for survival. This gift book is the first title of Poliza’s baby animal photographs, many of them published for the first time. From lion cubs in Botswana to baby chimpanzees and gorillas in Tanzania, penguin chicks on the Antarctic peninsula to polar bear cubs in Canada, Poliza travels the world in search of the most endearing wildlife babies. Whether in the African savannah or polar extremes, few photographers have come so close to their wildlife subjects. To achieve such proximity, Poliza shows masterful sensitivity and patience, not only towards the baby animals them-selves, but also with their fiercely protective mothers. From a frolicking baby elephant to a sleeping little lion cub, Baby Animals brings page after page of heart-warming images and tiny triumphs in nature photography.

A perceptive and very personal portrait of Mallorca—Michael Poliza’s unique photographs and thoughtful selection of motifs makes this so much more than a conventional travel guide The island’s stunning variety of landscapes are captured in a single photo book Wherever you live, no matter the season, Poliza’s photos will make you long for sunshine and the sea   Rich with promise: one of teNeues’s most successful and revered artists uncovers an inimitable tourist destination for international travelers. Nature photographer Michael Poliza has already published nearly a dozen books—­including bestsellers like Africa, Eyes Over Africa, and AntArctic—and as an organizer of high-end nature adventure treks, he has a particularly keen sense for unique locations. For his latest tome, he focused on a place of legendary beauty that brims unexpected surprises: ­Mallorca. It’s no wonder that Mallorca has certain qualities in common with tapas, the island’s culinary specialty. The great thing about tapas is that you don’t have to make a meal out of just one ingredient; you can taste a bit of this and have a nibble of that and enjoy a broad spectrum of flavors. And that is the perfect way to describe the vacation mecca of Mallorca, which boasts an attractive mix of old and modern architecture, lively beaches and secluded bays, and the vibrant city of ­Palma and quaint mountain villages. On the ground or from the air, Michael Poliza paints an intimate picture of Mallorca and its most exciting locales—the salt mounds of Es Trenc, Cala sa Nau, the Cap de Formentor lighthouse, and the serpentine road to Sa Calobra—and fulfills his promise magnificently.
